This photograph was taken exactly one week ago, on 14th september at around 7 pm. Since my parents were in holiday in Greece, i was the only one in the house. Sometimes, my grandfather comes by and checks for everything. That day, i had my headphones on me working on my laptop, but no sound was playing, and i just could hear some steps getting louder and louder. Instinctively, i grabbed my camera ( Canon EOS 60D + Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L ), and i went to the living room where i was amazed by the light coming through the entrance hallway and "trapping" my grandfather's face in light right after he left the kitchen.
I am so excited about this shot, because it's probably my best photograph of my grandfather which captures his natural expression. I really like the two spots of light that are on the left and right side of the subject, because it makes your eyes wander between them two and the direct eye contact of my grandfather blocks this imaginary playful ride.
The money from the prize will be invested in new camera gear.
